12 oz. bottle poured into snifter

L: hazy-murky orange, light passes through but it's otherwise opaque; the head is minimal, maybe 1/3-inch of offwhite to beige; keeps a decent collar

S: orange blossoms ... honeysuckle ... something sweet; some sour/tart citrus notes, possibly also some grass ... definitely lemons; it's hitting a bunch of notes, but the tart citrus note is the foundation

T: oranges, citrusy, grain ... lots of grain in there; the citrus notes are tart but sweet; over time it becomes almost saison-like -- very tart, dry, lemony ... and almost a pinch of clove or allspice

F: nice and crisp, plenty of carbonation despite a lackluster pour; a contender for perfect

O: hits the right notes for the style with a tart citrus theme augmented by a bit of sweetness here and there ... all the hop characteristics are in the flavor -- there's little to no bitterness. a good brew and solid attempt at a Belgian style that can be subtle and nuanced

This is an easy drinker; low ABV by Weyerbacher standards. Open and pour and it smells like the Visitor's Center.

07/25/13 On tap. At Rattle N Hum, NYC. Unique bittersweet pucker at first taste. Distinct pale ale characteristics. Some spice, but I can't pick them out of the line-up. Regardless this is a superb brew, mystery notwithstanding.

Spicy, bitter hops are there but mild. Nothing stands out as far as Flavors or hints. Basic
